Why do some adapt sooner then others and many are way behind????

$$$ for the municipality? Lack of educated persons to do the switch?

Some municipalties do a lengthy review by committee to determine if they want to adopt the entire code as written or amend it to their requirements. It shouldn't take years, but sometimes it does.

Minnesota adopts the NEC in it's entirety each code cycle. However, most cases it doesn't go into effect until July of that year. The exception being 2014 where inspectors started enforcing the rules on AFCI protection starting the first of the year. Surprisingly there are some states still on the 2008 NEC.

Michigan is generally one full cycle behind the latest, plus or minus a few months. I assume it gives other states the time to shake out the bugs on the latest changes. Whenever there's a new code version the industry groups, labor groups, construction industry, etc all argue back and forth with the government about how much it will affect prices, jobs, the phase of the moon, various political BS which takes loads of time before the code gets passed as law.

Ray, I got an email yesterday afternoon very similar to the one in your post #2 of this thread telling me my state had adopted the 2014 NEC. The funny thing is that my state has no jurisdiction over electrical codes and can't adopt and mandate electrical code, jurisdictions in my state are all by either municipality or county. I think they are just trying to sell NEC Handbooks. My county is still on the 2008 code because the review panel has never been able to come to terms over eliminating the 2008 amendments and adopting the 2011 code. It gets complicated here because some counties and some cities have been on the 2011 code and are now reviewing the 2014 code. There are a handful of areas I am aware of that are still on the 1999 code.
